#reflectiveteacher – 9/4 – What I Love The Most About Teaching

Reflective Teacher Blog Challenge

Note: I am participating in a 30-day blog challenge as part of Reflective Teacher Month at Teach Thought. I am looking forward to learning more about myself, my pedagogy and my colleagues.

Day 4 Prompt: What do you love the most about teaching?

My favorite part of teaching is when you get to that moment where everything clicks. Maybe just one student suddenly grasps a concept that he or she has been struggling with. Or perhaps the entire class suddenly engages and gets excited about a discussion, or a concept.

I live for those moments.
